Subject: Great show, but...
Really terribly pitch shifted. This show (and so much of 73 on archive) really deserves to be corrected and re-upped. The entire recording is almost a full half-step sharp. If you're jamming along, or have perfect pitch, it's incredibly distracting.

If this was three stars then everything from 91-95 would be zero stars. Excellent first set. The Other One is gigantic as it ought to be. This was the most indispensable tune.
Subject: Good show.
SICK China>Rider - one of my all-time favorites if you live this combo u have to hear this one. Also the Other One sandwich in set 2 is amazing and just as brilliant as the PITB sandwich on 11/20. In particular I LOVE the transition from TOO into Eyes, and what a Eyes it is. Not just a typical '73 version - this is played with that '74 energy and gusto - complete with sick Phil runs towards the end, as every good late '73-'74 Eyes should have.
Also I agree this HCS is good but not great. The version from 3 nights later on 11/17 at UCLA is a mindblower though!
Subject: Masterly Sublime
Wonderful Here Comes Sunshine. I echo all others opinions here.
The jam after Truckin', into a jazzy retelling of The Other One is for me truly sublime.
The apex of Jazz Dead
Subject: Great Show to be sure but best HCS? don't think so
I am loving this show for the most part but Here Comes Sunshine is one of my favorite tunes and this one is sloppy, sloppy, sloppy.... if you want a good one try this one ...
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-12-06.sbd.remaster.102750.flac16 ... the spectrum show from 9-21-73 also has a great version.
all that being said...this show is still well worth a listen for sure as all '73 shows pretty much are
Subject: You had to be there ...
One of the worst venues in San Diego and one of the best Dead shows I have ever heard. For all of those folks who say this is the best HCS, it is. I don't know what Donna was doing that night but it was absolutley heavenly. We all knew it at the time, we were transfixed by her performance. Just beautiful.
Exellent both in performance and sound quality.
Subject: way underrated classic show
as Dr. Flashback says, this show is overshadowed by two of the biggest shows of the year, but it shouldn't be. this is just about as good imho. of course there are a few flubs like almost any show, but otherwise the performances are nearly flawless, and full of that tasty '73 jamming, especially the truckin>TOO>big river>TOO>eyes>TOO>wharf sequence, which is of course the main highlight. it is a really interesting medley, though some of the transitions (like into big river and eyes) are rather abrupt. the eyes is really unique b/c it is the only one i know of before '75 that does not contain the slipknot, or stronger than dirt, or whatever you want to call it, minor key thing. billy throws some neat tempo changes into the back beat during the verses, and there's a great phil solo during the outro, which is nice since its usually something he seemed to do more in the '74 versions.
other highlights include a GREAT HCS, china>rider (as usual - is there really a bad one in '73!?) and a sweet cumberland. november is definitely the place to start in this year

you have got to be kidding me- Big Railroad a la best 72 then a 1st set Around-square as the day is long! then the Other one cubed the 2nd set Me&My AND GDTRFB sans NFA...Garcia is like a thoroughbed on the second backstretch of three, so Phil had a chair aye' I bet he was absolutely floored, the keys are as bright and energetic as the sun on the vernal equinox...; ) -HCS baby long after night fell
just another stop of the bus to never ever land...

Subject: this november run was absolute perfection
all three Winterland shows plus san diego, UCLA, and the two in Denver....all just fantastic.
FYI--the Winterland shows offered by the Dead site are well worth the money..IMO, the recordings are near perfect and the shows are just blissful and beautiful and you feel like you can listen forever to them.
4 stars for this one because i cannot see giving 5 for everyone and i am reserving my 5 star for my one personal favorite which i will search for all my days.
This is the best HCSS ever period, no argument, hands down, titty bongos(IMO). I have listen to all the HCSS available in good sound and this is it. 12/19/73 is good but the boys blow this one out. Cumberland is a ripper. Well talk is cheap. This is the best 73 show. You can comment on my opinion when you have heard it say 500 times all the way through as I have(no bullshit). GET THIS SHOW you wont be let down.
Subject: Worth it...
Just for the super silky smooth Here Comes Sunshine. The vocals in HCS are spot on, and I oftentimes get annoyed that the harmonies are out of pitch or lagging in tempo, but the boys nailed it this night. And the jam sequence is jazzy and laid back. Listen to Bill on the drums, super slow and restrained in the first few minutes with low toms and snare, then starts to put it into high gear as the jam builds splashing the cymbals and using cyncopated rhythms on the snare. Great interplay between Keith and Bobby, feeding off of each other, and then Jerry really coming in on top of them at his own speed. Of course Phil keeps a solid foundation.
Wish I was there!

1973 was by and far the best year in GD history.The sound and recording quality of this show was no exception.Clear and precise music makes this another gem to have in the collection.
Subject: This tour should become a Road Trips release
Perhaps a 30 disc release might be in order as this is in the middle of what might be called two months of the grateful dead "peeking"

Subject: underated gems
This show was one of the first given to me by old deadhead to exemplify the late 73 era. supersmokin *the very best live* HCSS-everyone firing on all cylinders. top rated CUMBERLAND AND CHINA/RIDER. NOT SLOPPY. first set so tight diamonds were formed. Those songs will give u the goosebumps.------
amazing show... the boys just kept the energy coming. this tour was just about the greatest two months of recorded music i could ever ask for. the flow, the stream of consciousness from line to line, especially that other one just puts the psychedelic experience into musical context.
Subject: This show is way under-rated
This show is excellent. All around rating, 5-stars... the band was tight, good energy and upbeat, vocals are nice and clear, great sound quality, Keith is at his best, and Jerry plays some interesting and lovely melodic riffs throughout... that I thought were a bit spunky... like in Sugaree and Tennessee Jed.
I've listened to many of the late '72 to late '73 shows here on the LMA... not all. This show is a gem. I discovered it purely by chance, and a bit of good effort by all. I went to about 25 Dead concerts during this period, on the east coast. I think this show is rated way under the radar, my deadhead friends. It's excellent throughout.
I just met this great lady my age. She only saw the Dead a couple of times, many years ago. I'm setting her up now... so that she can listen to the Dead, here on the LMA. She wanted me to recommend one show to listen to now... so she could hear them again, for the first time in years. Believe it or not, I recommended this show. It epitomizes the best of the Dead in this era.
Subject: Newest GD Hour Show
For about the last month, this show has been featured, a few songs at a time. The sound and performances are excellent - so good that I had to DL the whole show. Great versions of each song. Can't go wrong with this one.
Subject: Other Shows
Anyone know where the 11/11 and 11/17 shows could be listened to? I didn't see them on the Archive.
Subject: Best Here Comes Sunshine?
If not- it is right up there- great way to start today!
Subject: What a night!
This was my 3rd Dead show ever. I had seen them at Dillon with the ABB in 72, and at Watkins Glenn. I caught this show and then the one they did in Tempe, AZ on 11/25 (it was Thanksgiving time, and though you don't hear about it much, I thought it was an awesome show). What a (wall of) sound they had this year!
I remember this night as a lonnnnnng one. Yes, the TOO triple-decker was something else.
Oh hell, I wish I was 18 again. And it was 1973.
Subject: Great Stuff
This is one of those shows I'd love to have for a nice long road trip, like a coming New Hampshire to Atlanta trip I've got coming up. A few of these and you're there! Second set is
a mind blower.
Makes sense that the boys were off their faces tonight since they appear to exhibit in the second set that subtle fingers-on-a-hand effect that characterized so many of their peak late 60's performances (St. Valentines Day at the Carousel stands out). The Sunshine in the first set is dripping with goo. GOO!
Let's be honest, folks. The fall of '73 is the bomb shit. I think it's fucked up and inhumane that the Archive removed many of the soundboards from this tour (pending another Dick's Picks or Vault release perhaps?).
Anyway, if you like 'em mellow, this one is a must.

Subject: Not Total Boredom
The reason Phil sat in a chair, or a footrest was more like it, was the because the band had tripped the night fantastic before and at the intermission. The fact they tossed out 16 songs in the first set was the result of some toasty pre show activities. Not to mention a 90 minute jam to open the 2nd set with 3 Other Ones. Not a show ever played had 3 Other Ones that I can recall. Add on another 3 songs and you had one incredible evening. I know the Dark Star on 11/11 at Winterland was vintage Dead and the long Playing/Uncle John's/Morning Dew jam at Pauley on 11/17 was quite festive; but for me, the night belonged to the Dead and they played very inspired that evening. The fans realized this when the first set took nearly 2 hours to play. Oh, as far as the chair was concerned, I think Phil was just a tad too inibriated to stand for the 90 minute jam to open set 2.
Subject: I Was There
Not sure why so many people seem so excited about this show. I saw the Winderland shows the weekend before (11/11/73) and the Pauly Pavillion show at UCLA on 11/17. Five stars for these shows. SD Sports Arena? Phil SAT DOWN (that's right, they brought out a chair) during the second set, Total boredome appeared to be the mood onstage. Check out 11/11 and 11/17 shows.
Subject: smokin cumberland
This is one of the most smokin cumberland's I have ever heard.
So is the BTW and trip TOO!
Great show, 73 is a vintage year.
Subject: WONT YOU TAKE ME TO...
THIS SHOW IS FUNKY, GET IT, FOOL. although bobby's voice is a little on the horrible side tonight... ha... he and jer still have a fat jam session. phil cracks the concrete foundation of the house in set I then burns down the rest in set II... that is, assuming YOU can hear him. The common formula for a 73' show was followed here and it worked well. hctss and the cowboy tunes ARE skippable by all means... the cumberland was a swell treat, but it has seen better days. I absolutley love 73 thats why im trying to mention the bad parts of the show, cos the YOU KNOW with a second set like this... the show is gonna be a full of facemelters. sound not perfect... some "warm up" versions in set I... STILL worth the download, if only for the fat set II jams.

this show is a prime example of some damn good '73 dead. a nice long first set, and a wonderfully jammed out 2nd set. i just saw DSO perform this show and they did it very well......i suggust a download
Subject: I Can`t Explain
Why after all these years do I keep coming back? I go away for a little while but todays "music scene" bores me and I come back.Each song that I have heard hundreds of times is done different each show.Listened to differently each time.New goose bumps tingle on the back of my neck.Old memories flood back. Time stands still for a minute.Its Nixon screwing things up instead of Bush.I have hair again.And women don`t call me sir.And a chance to be in the crowd listening to the best damn band in the world.......AHHHHHHHHH! Back to the show..what can i say? Good clear sound,very enjoyable show.As usual download,sitback,flashback,and enjoy!! Thanks Archive

All Time Irie Show-Timmy Taco is a pussy!
Go Catamounts bitches!
11/14/73, 11/17/73, and 12/19/73 are all equally insane shows! Each one has its own groove. The highlight for me of this show is Cumberland Blues...a tune I always want more of...and this night they are smokin'...especially Jerry. The triple TOO sandwich is all over the map. What a special night it must have been to be there. I'll always wonder what it was like.

Subject: another one
another 73 show that sets the standard of excellence for all to be measured by,anyone that gives this show a 3 star rating and somethin in 91-95 is insane
Subject: Sound Quality
The sound quality is better on this one than either 11/11 or 11/17, all are excellent though, We call this one "The Other One every other one". Easy 5 stars
Subject: Truckin>>wharf rat
Just tonight I was in the mood to listen to a nice long jam out of Truckin' from 1973 because I got tired after listening to my collection of primal '67 and '68 Dead all weekend. Well this 69 minute Truckin thru Wharf Rat sure didn't disappoint. I had never heard this show before and knew very little about it and I've been collecting shows for 10 years. Why? Because it's literally surrounded by two stellar shows, 11/11 and 11/17. I'd have to say that this is one of the great overlooked performances, much like 5/11/72 overshadows the superb 5/10/72 (is it a coincidence that this and 5/10 feature great versions of the Other One).
I'd say this gets 5 stars for the third disc alone, and the sound quality is phoenominal, every little detail (from Bill's crash cymbal to Phil's low E string) crystal clear. Definitely get it now.
Subject: Get this
Great sound quality. Enjoyable concert. Definitely worth a lossless download.
Subject: sound quality
one of the best sound quality shows that i have found on the Archive. i think it might even be a matrix copy. im blown away with the sound quality here. 5 stars sound, 4.2 stars show.
Subject: Cumberland best ever?
If you are a Cumberland fan like I am then don't pass this one up. I truly think it's the hottest ones ever. Picking a great show from'73 is like going into Fort Knox and trying to decide what gold bar is the best, you know ya want all of it!
Lao Wei -
Originally I gave this five stars -- but that was a year ago before the full smorgasboard alluded to by the good doctor was laid on the table. Thus I defer to his observation and revise downward. Still a more than adequate snack, tho...
Crispy first set with a shimmering Sunshine & fluid China/Rider, the latter separated by sweet interstitial marmelade jam. Starts tight and stays tight throughout.
Second set Other One excursion a most worthwhile journey. Agreed, not on the melodic side -- but The Other One rarely is, and this surging jam ebbs and flows tightly in and out of Big River, a luscious Eyes, to dock smoothly at the Wharf. This ain't everyday noodlin', kids, but a fat sandwich with all the sides AND a bag o' chips.
Sound quality is stellar, with bass and keys exceptionally well defined; in fact, the mix is so good I doubt they would bother to clean it up for an official release, since it's so close already. Don't go hungry -- this download will take care of those munchies pronto.

Subject: not too shabby!
In any other year, this could be one of the top shows. Unfortunately, it's heavily overshadowed by the giant that preceeds it, 11/11, and the masterpiece of 11/17 that follows. But don't overlook this little magic mushroom. Energetic versions of Cumberland, China>Rider and HC Sunshine stand out. And while the Other One may not travel anywhere particularly new, it definitely satisfies your jam needs. Sometimes you buy the less expensive wine, this is that show. But the vintage is still a very magical year.
Dr. Flashback ;-)
Mr. Nice Guy -
Can you really go wrong in Nov. 73? I personally love the jams on disc 3--lots of interesting stuff here. Great sound on this one as well. Well worth the download--get it!
Subject: title of review? why is that necessary?
Not the best set list imho. Most of the songs are great, but a lot of the jamming on disc 2 on and around The Other One is pretty bad I think. It's mostly that chaotic lack-of-melody style that lets down what could be lovely long jams around '73-'74. The Other One is all instrumental which is a pity because it has great verses.
The 3 I give this show is in relation to other GRATEFUL DEAD shows. So its a pretty damn good listen as a whole, but there's loads of better stuff out there.
